With the advent of specific process emission limits being defined, continuous particulate monitoring has become a regulatory requirement for many industries.
smoke stack #1Particulate monitoring requires the measurement of the mass concentration of particulate matter in stack emissions to atmosphere. There is no known method of continuously measuring particulate concentration by direct measurement and therefore, all continuous particulate measurement methods are inferential.
Each method involves the measurement...
Rich-burn engine exhaust, when uncontrolled, can have wide concentration ranges and both CO and NOX can fluctuate significantly. The on-board CO dilution system will automatically set-up for optimum testing, perfect for a rich burn engine. Lean-burn engines have different exhaust characteristics, but NO2 can make up a significant portion of the total NOX measurement. The 350 measures both NO and NO2 for proper lean-burn engine set-up.
Due to high concentration, replaceable interference filters keep the sensors...
An electrostatic precipitator (ESP), or electrostatic air cleaner is a particulate collection device that removes particles from a flowing gas (such as air) using the force of an induced electrostatic charge. Electrostatic precipitators are highly efficient filtration devices that minimally impede the flow of gases through the device, and can easily remove fine particulate matter such as dust and smoke from the air stream. In contrast to wet scrubbers which apply energy directly to the flowing fluid medium, an...
Ormantine offers a wide range of products and services to meet the array of different needs that arise in the oil and gas industries. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), benzene, and other compounds are released during drilling, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and other extraction procedures. Monitor NOx emissions from heavy duty equipment, particulate matter, and ground level ozone, the formation of which is contributed to by VOCs from processing, transportation, and storage of oil and gas.
The nature of steel manufacturing processes places severe limitations on the monitoring methods that can be used. Aggressive environments combined with high levels of particulates and gases make the choice very limited.
Opsis provides state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, fully meeting the high standards of monitoring performance and reliability that the cement industry requires. The Opsis in situ systems are designed to withstand environments with high particulate levels and high temperatures.
Traffic, especially in urban locations, is one of the greatest contributors to air pollution. Traffic produces a variety of different pollutants that include particulates, NO2, NO, CO, hydrocarbons and in some cases SO2.
The monitoring of roadside pollution can be challenging as often it is difficult to find suitable locations for large air quality monitoring systems and many sites that are available can be too far away to be representative of roadside air pollution.
Roadside pollution concentrations can change...
The exhaust gas from combustion engines is a complex mixture of gases and particulate matter. The composition of the gas may change rapidly. Multicomponent analysis of exhaust gases can be performed with a Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzer with a response time (T90) of one second. The winning combination is the result using of a small volume gas sample cell, a powerful sample pump and a fast detector with liquid nitrogen cooling. The analyzer, sampling system and computer can be assembled on a cart for use in a...
Regulations around the globe are becoming more and more stringent for particulate emissions. Macrotek offers some of the most efficient wet and dry technologies to meet the latest EPA, EU, and MOE standards. Often, particulate collection is combined with acid gas removal. Our most advanced wet-dry system meets and exceeds the most stringent regulations for both hazardous gases and particulate.
In recent years, new regulations have been introduced governing emissions from ships. With the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopting Annex VI of MARPOL designed to limit sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrous oxides (NOx) and particulate matter emissions, as well as introducing emission control areas (ECAs) to reduce emissions of those air pollutants further in designated sea areas, ship owners/operators can face hefty fines for failing to meet these new requirements on the “polluter pays” principle.
A key issue in the measurement of the products of combustion in Cement and Lime industries is the high levels of particulates. The Procal 2000 in situ analyser`s heated probe option is especially suited to this industry as it efficiently deals with variations in process temperature, keeping the probe above the sample dew point and safe from corrosive condensate.
For PM emission control in high temperature exhaust streams, such as fuel oil boilers, usual dedusters such as bag filters are very maintenance demanding. Particularly, diesel and fuel particulates are very sticky and clog to filter elements, unless protection reagents are used. Flue gas cooling is also needed in front of the filter when temperatures are higher than 200 ºC. On the other hand, regular cyclones and multicyclones are frequently not able to reduce emissions to present emission limits.
In addition to tightened government regulations, paint manufacturers and paint booth owners face several unique challenges when controlling their emissions. These challenges include airflow reduction, fugitive emissions, particulate control and reducing operating costs.
One-time, on-site final destruction of particulates. This is the key benefit gained from an Anguil solution to the emissions generated by the rubber curing process. Other advantages of an Anguil solution include the elimination of visible blue haze, guaranteed destruction efficiency compliance, and the elimination of costly mechanical filtration media and the lingering liability issue associated with filter disposal.
Anguil`s Food and Bakery industry experience provides reliable solutions for your emission control challenges. We have worked on a wide range of applications: achieving a high destruction level of ethanol from bakery ovens, chaff and particulate from coffee roasting, efficiently destroying grease from frying and rendering operations, handling smoke house emissions, and maintaining required opacity and odor levels from confectionery and gum manufacturing.
We can treat the air streams from waste management plants, MBT (Mechanical Biological Treatment) reception and composting areas, Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP), Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Plants, gasification of waste, syngas, torrefaction, gas engines and biogas upgrading.
In waste management plants and WWTP, we remove the odors that may be causing a nuisance to neighbors, with bioreactors using Biomass to degrade odorous components and where odors are particularly intractable or VOC emissions higher,...
Many of the air quality analyses can be performed with standard laboratory consumables, such as traditional filter papers. However, some analyses require materials with specific features, for example filters with low metal levels.
Common air monitoring applications include:
Air quality testing of ambient environment and emissions. Includes particulate monitoring methods such as PM2.5 and PM10, and chemical analysis such as heavy metals determination.
Asbestos sampling and analysis
